Breathe Deeply in Faith Mobius Necklace
This elegant sterling silver Mobius necklace is finely engraved with a quotation from Kierkegaard:
"O God teach me to breathe deeply in faith."
Soren Aabye Kierkegaard was a highly influential 19th century Danish philosopher, man of letters, social commentator and theologian. Born in Copenhagen in 1813, he would come to be regarded as the father of existentialism, before the term itself actually gained currency. His short and well known prayer has been engraved in a cursive 19th century script and encapsulates Kierkegaard's view that faith is a personal relationship directly between man and maker. It has a serenity and spareness worthy of one of the seminal thinkers of western philosophy.
This remarkable pendant employs the uniquely beautiful geometric form known as a Mobius strip, named after the German mathematician, August Ferdinand Mobius (1790-1868). It represents the seeming paradox of a plane without end, or one of infinite length. As such it becomes an accepted symbol for infinity, an appropriate and symbolic form for a quotation such as this.
The circlet will move about the chain when worn, constantly changing its appearance, creating one shape and then another. The more you observe its seeming simplicity, the more complex it becomes. The message remains constant, the shape never rests.
Sterling silver mobius pendant on 18" silver chain.
Mobius pendant measures 1" in diameter. Composed of .925 solid sterling silver. Also available in 14 K gold by special order. Gift packaged with story card and black drawstring bag.

DVB utilizes the “cire-perdue” or lost-wax casting method of jewelry creation. Lost-wax casting is actually an ancient method of jewelry production used in creating the finest jewelry. Owing to the nature of the technique and the hand finishing of each casting, small variations in dimension, weight and finish will occur.
